We offer shot blast services to anyone needing to clean their concrete surface and have it prepared for any particular coating application or resealing. We have the equipment to remove any type of coating that needs to be removed.
Shot Blasting provides a clean dry profiled substrate that allows for paints, coatings, and overlays to mechanically bond. Our equipment is very efficient and can execute larger square foot areas. All the dust is collected while we run our shot blasters.
Shot blasting removes laitance from the surface which is a weak layer of cement at the top of the concrete. It also removes sealers and other thin coatings.Shot blasting is a preferred method for preparing concrete surface that have any of the following: dirt, oil, grease, curing compounds, sealers, paint, rubbers from tires, etc This step is imperative to get proper adhesion for almost any cement coating.
We do not always shot blast before striping but always let the customer know that it is important for adhesion.
